Tyrimmas (Ancient Greek: Τυρίμμας) was an Argead King of Macedon

In the "History of The World", Sir Walter Raleigh states that Caranus, leading a colony into Macedon(ia), observed a herd of goats fleeing a storm and followed them to the Gates of Edessa. Being dark, he entered the city un-noticed and took the city without resistance. Soon after he overthrew Cisseus to become ruler of Macedon(ia). After ruling for twenty eight years, he was succeeded by Coenus, who ruled for twelve years. Coenus was succeeded by his eldest son Tyrimmas who ruled for twenty eight years. Tyrimmas was followed by Perdiccas I.
